DIY Tips & Tricks

Make your own lip scrub!

Every now and again (especially when the weather gets chilly) It is prudent to exfoliate your lips. Chappy peely lips are not good look for fall.

Or any season for that matter…

You might find yourself wishing you had an elegant and luxurious lips scrub.

Lucky for you I have a little recipe that will turn your lips into the babies-bottom-buttery-silky-smoothness you have only dreamed about.
(This statement has not been approved by the FDA)

I present to you:

Recipe as follows:

1 Tube soft lips chapstick (if you don’t have chapstick on hand use A&D ointment or coconut oil)
1/4 Teaspoon Sugar
a couple drops olive oil

Empty the chapstick into a small bowl add sugar and olive oil and mix well.
Roll down chapstick container and refill with mixture.
Apply chapstick in circular motion all over your lips. Wipe excess sugar and enjoy baby soft lips. ( I buy the two pack of soft lips so that I can apply the non-sugar one after my exfoliation)

    I made mine with just plain good ol’ chapstick (Classic Original – black/white/and yellow label). I’ve been using it for 4 days and it is AMAZING!!!!!!!

    What’s the easiest way to get it back into the tube? That sounds tricky.

    Thank you for this recipe! I put Avon lip stuff, coconut oil, and a couple drops of olive oil in a small bowl and softened everything in the microwave. I mixed the sugar in and then placed all the ingredients into a sandwich and cut the tip off to put it back in the lip tube. (Tip: cut the tip just a little small than tube opening. If you do too small the bag will bust/tear.)

    Thanks again!
